    Pros

    I worked for T&B for more than 10 years. I loved the management team I supported. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    I feel the company lost its "family-oriented atmosphere" after they were acquired in 2012. Low salary compared to other companies. I left the company before my department was outsourced.

    I have been working at ABB full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong attention on technology - R&D. Many mobility opportunities geographically and cross divisions. Significant USA investment through acquisitions. Competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Cultures vary widely. Hierarchy unclear to most employees - matrix organization with many layers and dotted lines. Customer centricity and communication is noticeably lacking at all levels. Heavy cost savings focus and attention.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritizing culture and customer focus is low hanging fruit across ABB.
